Are Nyquist and Pulkkinen studs too?

Because there placements are right in the same area.

DD is worth about $4.5M, IMO and I also think Mrazek should get Vaisilovskiy money.

 

4.5M would be at the very minimum. 4.5-5.5M.

 

Mrazek will make much more than Vasilevskiy, as he should.

 

He's played over twice as many games and has far superior stats in every category.

Very few teams carry 8 D for more than a few games here and there. Helm's contract guarantees him a top 9 spot, so unless they waste Sheahan on the 4th line there's no room for Mantha or AA. Holland won't keep them to play on the 4th line.

 

Agreed.  Both with the roster as it is I think it's the most likely scenario.

 

There is no way Sproul or Ouellet would get waived before Frk.

Uh.....ok, let's keep 8 dmen instead.

One of xo/sproul/Jensen will be #7 with the current roster. The other two will be sent to GR and be forced to go through waivers.

If Frk is good, the other fwds with exemptions will start in GR. Holland won't risk losing him to another team.

Not unless Cleary wants to play...

Of course a trade involving any of these players will change things.

 

Quite common actually...lol

Those are more or less locks to be regulars. Frk is this year's Pulk. Big AHL numbers, lacks things he needs to be a good NHL player, but will probably start with the team. Jurco probably gets the other 4th line spot, square peg in the round hole. Ott probably makes the team. That's the 14 forwards. Holland will stammer about how Mantha, AA, and maybe a couple other guys are good enough but won't play a top nine role because of numbers and trading is hard, like, really REALLY hard and you have to give up a good player to get anything of value back and he won't do that, so they'll be riding the bus in GR. The defense will be a fuster cluck, Jensen will be waived to much crying and clear, whoever loses out of Marchenko, XO, and Sproul will get claimed. A rumor will leak out that whoever gets lost on waivers threatened to go to Europe instead of GR and fans will cry about him for a year until everyone figures out he's nothing special anyway.

 

Frk and Pulkkinen are nowhere near comparables in terms of numbers in the AHL.

 

121 Points in 119 Games

68 Points in 149 Games

 

You can guess who's who.

 

We're not waiving one of Sproul/Ouellet/Marchenko to keep Frk as a 14th forward...
